know the basic military training environment is highly susceptible to the abuse of power, with established institutional safeguards to prevent misconduct by instruct druce. these safeguards are designed to dissuade misconduct very strong as sharp or selection screening and training process and to deter misconduct are an effective system of detection and accountability. leaders play a critical role because they must constantly monitor safeguards for weaknesses and make corrections as necessary. moreover, training is struck druce had a responsibility to uphold our core values and hold themselves accountable for helping to detect those who violate our standards. in a properly functioning system that minimizes misconduct, most instructors will be dissuaded from inappropriate behavior and a few who are not will be detected and held accountable for their actions. leadership will have good insight into the effect of miss that the institutional safeguards and the instruct druce will police themselves. returning now to the three questions of what happened in basic literary trainin

[applause] >> actually, i would like to, i'm going to ask a few questions, but i was hoping we could get a debate going here rather than with me trying to ask intelligent questions and just have the very smart people just talking amongst themselves to educate us. so one of the questions that we're wanting to talk about today was the idea of free will in terms of the criminal justice system. and i would like to ask each of you, is there a definition of free will in the context of your individual work? we'll start with you, doctor. >> i would punt that one right over to david
-growth environment. party politics got this into this mess. host: our next call for amy kremer comes from ronald in canton, ohio. caller: i want to say that the president wants to raise taxes on the rich and the businesses, not the business, the rich to pay their fair share. one thing i will say, all of this time during the campaign, all the businesses and rich folks, they spend all of this money toward the campaign for mitt romney and yet they do not want to pay their fair share. that does not make any sense. they spent all of that money and now they say we cannot do that. they just spent a billion dollars. think how much that would have helped the country to get better, but they say we do not want to do that. give me an answer on that. guest: look, the democrats spent a billion dollars, too. i think $6 billion was spent in the election. you know, i think that is two different subjects. the money that is spent in the campaigns verses people paying taxes, i do not think either one of them have anything to do with each other and that is what happens in campaigns. most people understand money is i

leaders talk about al the time is s the cost of uncertainty. we are in an environment of maximal uncertainty. you will see significant pressure from wall street in t the business community for a deal derstanding that there will be sharared pain and we wilill he skin in the game. yes, there will be protectedo -- will be attempts toto protect the status quo. there has to be pu and pull, on all sid, and you have less uncertainty going forward -- >> "the wall street journal" had a good headline -- "c.l.'s to washington: stop already." mcconnell said "i didot g elected to raise taxeses." u know that eric cantor will try to hold dowown on the house side on raising taxes. but you heheard jojohn boehneray "i am the most reasonable guy in all of washington." we will see what happens within ncy pelosi. if she decides to run agait the leaders, she will be one of the westover people in the room. it could be an interesting race between steny hoyoyer, whwho may be more willing to compromise with republicans, and chris van hollen, who o may neneed nancy pelosi's backing to beat at steny hoyer f
a particular worldview and a set of assumptions and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and linda lingle and heather wilson. the problems with republicans is that they're based -- that's a very ideologically driven voters, tea party folks, but part of the republican base is more open, friendly, to voting for democrats than the democratic base is for voting for republicans, i believe. i'm sure we could chew this over. let me give you an example. but me give you an example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north olympic terrific candidate and north dakota. mitt romney won north dakota by 20, 21 points. and heidi was able to overcome that. it's true that she won them as the president one north dakota, slightly less than president, that mr. romney one north dakota slightly less than the president one massachusetts. but i think the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but is more willing to vote for democrats. and, jim matheson surviving utah is amazing. amazing. john barrow

is the contributing environment that is lending itself. a lot of the police officers have to be at a certain rank and have to be kept on the contract as a source of the sort of securing full time to permanent status with protection. this is one of the conditions that actually makes it much easier on superiors and senior members of the security establishment to basically pressure them into taking questionable activities. if you don't pull the trigger then i will endure contract by the end of this year because you are in a contract you are basically not protected. i would -- you know, i would question the assumption that the securities sector reform is necessarily aimed at, you know, disempowering are dismantling the securities sector, and i would actually say that there are a lot of measures, a lot of proposals in the case of egypt that would strengthen the status of the living conditions and the working conditions of the egyptian police. >> we think that this idea of the reform versus strengthening. when we talk about strengthening, are we talking about more weapons, more capabilities that they c
or anything but we all know him and he was worried about the regulatory environment that we're going to see in the future, and his thought was that with the people that would be put in place, like-minded people put in place over the next four years it will take 25 before it's gone. i go well we'll both be dead by then. i hope not, but in all likelihood before this reverses, then i went to the liquor cabinet again, and anyway. could it be 25 years before we reverse some of the regulatory? >> i haven't thought out that far but -- >> you're still young. you might be alive. >> perhaps. >> dodd-frank only a third of the rules for dodd-frank have been implemented. >> talk about which ones are coming back. >> we've only just begun. >> which is why the financials sold off yesterday. >>> if you have comments, questions, anything you see on squawk, shoot us an e-mail squawk@cnbc.com, and follow us on twitter. >>> power in the nation, which companies are best equipped to keep your lights on? >>> later, athenahealth jonathan bush, the younger cousin -- anyway, we'll talk about the election results and

america's environment against polluters, we find that we can't quite figure out how to be in a conversation about what it means to be an american with the tea party ethic and their ethos when they approach problems. it's tough for us to figure out how to work together and i think it's important. >> ari, just to the boehner example on obama care, is that an example where can a republican, leading republican now, fight back against the tea party if they so choose? if they wanted to, can they speak out against them? it seems there's a lot of people afraid to voice any opposition or have that public discussion. >> well, look, john boehner also today put the idea of taxes on the table. he has caught flack for that. at the end of the day it's the job of the president to split from the liberal base of his party and the job of the republicans to split from the most vociferous voice of the conservative movement if we're going to accomplish anything. no one is going to get everything they want in this new divided washington. what the american people are tired of is the nation
. what is different about this environment is that the bush tax rate will expire. we will revert to the rates under clinton for everyone unless president obama signed an extension. after this campaign, that would be pretty shocking. he ran explicitly but as a candidate to say that he will raise taxes on the top. unless he suddenly decides that, i didn't mean it, it does not really matter all that much what house speaker thinks. the tax cut will expire unless obama is willing to extend it. that changes the whole dynamic. virtually all of the republicans have decided the broker norquist pledged not to raise tax rates. if the tax cuts expire at the end of the year and then in january you extended for 97% of americans, the new never voted to raise tax rates. your only cutting taxes. it is possible for something like that -- when the speaker said that yesterday, it was not really reflecting the world that he now lives in. unless the president is willing to extend the tax cuts, they will not be extended. >> i have a question for you. to what extent will there be a major -- and the repu
in that environment to know that he does not think of those things lightly and let me make it very clear that based on again, my discussions with him, he has not provided paula broadwell or anyone with information, classified information that they shouldn't have. >> has he had any conversation or contact with paula broadwell in the last few days? >> last few days, i'm not aware of any. she, up until everything that came out with the news, i'm sure she was still working on her dissertation. there was some potential contact back and forth over a little bit of time about that. you have to imagine somebody who is doing their dissertation is not going to just give up that entire body of work and research very easily. >> what about jill kelley? how do you describe david petraeus' relationship with her? >> i think very simply as close personal friends of not only david petraeus but of his wife, holly, as well. they met the kelleys not too long after they arrived at tampa, mcdill air force base, home of u.s. central command, where he became the commander october 31st, 2008. my understanding is that the kel
from oozing into the environment in the area. that is the sand walls you're looking at right here. they just switched on the lights. we're looking at dump trucks and 18-wheelers coming in, melissa bringing in this debris. the president did do a flyover when we were here at 11:30 this morning. he did give a shoutout to the sanitation workers, melissa because they're the first-responders that basically removed the debris. the new york parks department gratefully to the area opened this up. if they didn't build this landfill hill, the rebuild would have even been slower, melissa. right in the area, it is heartbreaking. photo albums, toys, bicycles, children's car seats. i picked up photos just around my area. it is a heartbreaking sight for people affect bid this. the story gone unnoticed. the reason why the fires were very bad in breezy point and rockaways, melissa, is because the degree was in the way. sanitation workers got in they helped to stop that problem. i will give it back to you. we'll go live throughout the early evening with updates what is going on here. it is a heck of
environment makes it difficult for them to vote for scott brown and heather wilson. the problems -- the problem with the republicans -- they have some very ideologically driven voters, but part of the republican base is more open to voting for democrats than the democratic base is to vote for republicans, i believe. that even example. heidi is a terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney one north dakota by 21. and i was able to overcome that. it is true that she -- that the president one north dakota slightly less than -- at mitt romney 1 north dakota at slightly less than the president's won massachusetts. but the republican coalition includes kind of a soft swing voter that is inclined to vote republican, but as more willing to vote for democrats. john barrow in georgia, the republican candidate was horrendous. a challenger refused to debate the incumbent. [laughter] i didn't say it was a bad decision, i just said it says something about the challenger. i think this is an additional problem. it is easier for moderate, centrist democrats to feel the republican voters than
and values that increasingly in a polarized environment makes it difficult for thome vote for scott brown and others. the problem with the republicans they're based, ideologically driven voters, tea party folks but part of the republican base is open for democrats then democratic base is voting for republicans, i believe. i'm sure we can chew this over. let me give you an example. let me give you an example. heidi hide camp -- hidecamp, terrific candidate in north dakota. mitt romney won north dakota by 20, 21 points. heidi was able to overcome that. it's true that she -- the president won north dakota slightly less then mid-romney won north dakota slightly less then the president won massachusetts. but i think the republican coalition includes kind of a soft, swing voters who is inclined to vote republican but more willing to vote for democrats. jim mathisson surviving in utah is amazing. amazing. john barrio in georgia, yes, the republicans candidate against him was horrendous. when the last time you heard a challenger refused to debate the incumbent? [laughter] >> you have to know your
this on the eve of an election. again, i'm obviously not positing some huge conspiracy. in our environment, in our hyperpartisan environment, most people in a situation like this seeing any possibility for political advantage would have raced to expose something like this, right? general petraeus was confronted about this two weeks ago, right? two weeks before the election. chose -- ultimately decided to resign but didn't decide to resign at that moment. was there part of the reason he did not decide to resign immediately upon being confronted on this, he knew it would be embarrassing for the administration on the eve of an election? that's a reasonable inference. there's so much we don't know because so many people individually have not spoken publicly about the chain of events and their motivations in terms of keeping quiet at a moment of maximum political volatility. >> just to clarify because i've raised a lot of questions here, my biggest concern isn't what happened at the end. i understand there are a lot of conservatives that are going to be thinking that this was -- >> cover-up. >> benghaz

their positions as we go forward. but i do think there was a lot that changed tuesday and i think that environment is somewhat reflected in the statement that john boehner made yesterday afternoon and i was being told comments he had on a conference call with his membership about how they had to change the way they operate. but when you look at the fact that you had a very significant victory by the president who campaigned on the issue of fiscal responsibility and very specifically the issue that makes this lame duck problematic that makes next year problematic is there going to be a change in tax rates. and the president campaigned on that. the exit polls showed people by large majority favered that, 60% nationwide said that they favered an increase in taxes, some wanted it on everybody, most wanted it just on people over $250,000 a year. most democratic senate candidates campaigned on that. they won 25 of 33 open seats. 75% of the open seats. and so i think they are coming back with a lot of wind in their sales. unlike the last session of congress where the resur gent republican majority came b

sovereign nation. and the money doesn't go to clean it up. i know mr. waxman loves the environment, so do i. but this money doesn't go for that purpose. it can be used for anything. it's not for engine technology, it's not for restoration of the environment. and it doesn't stop emissions. so this bill does represent a bipartisan, bicameral compromise. but it gives us the authority to hold their feet to the fire and get a solution. i reserve the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman reserves the balance of his time. the gentleman from west virginia. mr. lahood: mr. speaker, the gentleman i am going to yield to now may be departing the congress after this session. but we will still value his professionalism, his expertise and certainly his friendship for the very near and distant future. i'm happy to yield five minutes to the gentleman from illinois, the once chairman and now ranking member of our aviation subcommittee on transportation. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman is recognized for five minutes. >> i thank the gentleman, the running backing member, for yieldin
are looking at, as you said, an environment in which people are in panic mode over the fiscal cliff. i think there is a lot of support, actually, because the population does not seem to understand what the fiscal cliff is and what it means. what they are hearing on television is a lot of hype about what will happen if the fiscal cliff is not avoided. that is actually generating quite a bit of support for both sides to come together. it seems adult. it seems like the right thing to do. put your partisan differences aside for the country, and find some way to avoid the cliff. what that means in practice is striking some kind of deal, what we have heard of, as a grand bargain. it is important to keep in mind that the grand bargain itself, is really a form of austerity. this is an austerity plan. when you have an economy that is still struggling to find its feet, and you are talking about imposing austerity, i think we have seen pretty clearly, watching europe over the last 3.5 years -- that is not a good idea. we definitely have time to start -- to stop and get this right, before we follow gree
investment and the people, to follow our country in the competitive environment, and taxes is one of them. when you do that, you will get more revenue. it's guaranteed. again, it is sort of that thing we were talking about earlier. this is an opportunity for us as a country. and if you look at the congressional budget office analysis, what tax reform could mean in terms of macroeconomic impact of growth, i mean, all of them will lead to more growth, whether it is corporate tax reform or individual tax reform. >> he said this was fought over in the campaign and we fought over tax rates. rising tax rates. jay carney, the white house press secretary did say that the president will veto any bill that extends the current tax rates. so he insists that tax rates go up those making over $250,000. what would your recommendation be to the republican party in the senate? >> first, i believe the resident does have a detailed view of the press secretary. i like the president's comments better than jay carney's comments. i think jay carney was maybe, i think he was a little behind the curtain. i hope.
situations but also to look at the bigger public policy, that of the environment and that of climate change and global warming. we need to be cognizant of our stewardship over the -- our planet. we need to make certain that if these data that are compiled are telling us that there is increased prescription, for instance, over the catskills watershed, in my district, let's respond accordingly to sound public policy as it relates to our environment and our stewardship of the environment and let's be cognizant of the needs in response of this measure. you know, i'll just say this, and i know you want to add to this discussion here. i'll say this, in a time where government perhaps has been hit hard by critics out there suggesting there's no role for public sector here, we need to reduce government, i can tell you people addressing the war room, as they designated it, putting together all of the professionalism and academics and people who operate these programs and how well trained, watching that compilation, that collaborative effort of these profession alcs who are responding to public -- pr
operations are safe and clean for our communities and the environment. we're america's natural gas. i would calling the far left loons in that party to tamp it down a bit. president obama didn't win by very much. far left politics hurt him more than helped him. with us now were the five bob beckel. you were pretty close in your prediction. you underestimated barack obama's electoral college win. what did you know he was going to win? first of all. >> i knew he was going to win about a week ago. you said something last night. i think it had something to do with it the sandy thing did it. i don't think that romney had momentum like a lot of people do. i do think it took him off the stage for three or four days and that mattered. more importantly than that it was clear the item graphics of this election were going to have white voters down in the low 70s. at that point republicans can't wish, i don't care who they're. >> bill: three million less republicans, fewers republicans, thank you, volted for romney than mccain. >> right. >> bill: interestingly enough. you know president obama's total w
but the whole political environment has changed given the success of not just president obama but democrats more broadly in congress. and it does change everyone's incentive structure. there's no one, no one, who is politically well affected positively affected if the country drops into a second dip of a massive recession in the first half of 2013. >> chris cillizza, john heilemann, thank you both very much. joining me now to discuss the fiscal cliff negotiations, from inside, the house democratic perspective, chris van hollen, ranking member of the house budget committee and someone who served on the super committee. we've not completely depressed you about what you face, you know what you face. you've been in talks that have reds during the campaign. i would argue there was nothing specific other than hints from either mitt romney or president obama during the campaign that would tell people exactly how they were going to deal with these cuts and what they were going to do and how to approach entitlements. you can argue they don't have a mandate to deal with this. how do you approach the fisca
political environment has been an opportunity for lawmakers like republican james sensenbrenner of wisconsin to claim they are the new mainstream view on global warming. do you believe global warming is caused by the activity of human beings? >> partially, but not completely. >> hockenberry: percentage? >> can't predict that. >> hockenberry: 30%, 50%? >> well, i know it's not zero and i know it's not a hundred. i can't tell you what number it is in between. >> hockenberry: if 97% of scientists say it is mostly or significantly caused by human activity, what do you say to that? >> they are entitled to their opinion. but they are going to have to... >> hockenberry: do you think this will ever be settled scientifically if 97% consensus doesn't settle it for you? >> well, i... you know, i think that it's up to the scientists and their supporters to convince the public that this is the right thing to do. and the supporters of that side of the argument in the congress have been a huge flop. >> hockenberry: i visited one of the key democrats on this issue, massachuses senator john kerry. what had h
